Thought this may be of interest as a point of inspiration. The fabric is actually leopard skin print dyed green.

More than clever. It's beautiful.

I'm just not quite sure what I'm looking at. What is it?

A man in a crocodile costume from a Qdos pantomime (although it really shouldn't be classed as one) of Peter Pan.

It's good. They're a good company.

Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty and one or two others - Snow White, Beauty & the Beast - are Christmas Shows and perhaps become pantomimes depending on their production.

The real ones:
Cinderella
Aladdin
Jack & the Beanstalk
Mother Goose
Dick Whittington

Sinbad
Babes in the Wood
Red Riding Hood
Puss in Boots

What do you reckon? Any others?

Some years ago you used to get odd very thin nursey rhyme stories (Humpty Dumpty, Old King Cole) really little more than a long drawn out vehicle for hanging your own specialities.

Tony, i would class sleeping beauty, snow white and beauty and the beast ase pantos. But people think that the disney versions of them is the originall, which it isnt in sleeping beauty it was orginally a story about rape, but they are not going to put that on stage. i agree with you james peter pan isnt a panto its a show with panto features.
